A Scandinavian Spread for the Holidays

Christmas in Sweden calls for a copious Julbord spread of traditional foods. For New Yorkers, Aquavit Restaurant is offering just such a meal, with more than 20 items, including five kinds of herring, liver pâté, glazed spare ribs, sausages, Jansson’s temptation potatoes, pecan pie and cookies, $195 serving two with pickup. A slightly more modest array is designed by Ulrika Bengtsson and Gisela Nelson, caterers who started a website sweDISHnyc.com. Their Christmas in a Box is ready to serve, available for pickup in Manhattan or delivery, including nationwide shipping.

Aquavit Christmas to Go, $195 for two, 65 East 55th Street, 212-307-7311, aquavit.org; Christmas in a Box, $150 for two, $65 additional, sweDISHnyc.com, 917-251-7093.
